Omaha "Creature Feature" stalwarts know all about the 1954 original of Godzilla. We saw it multiple times on those Saturday night forays with Dr. San Guinary and Igor.

Plenty of Godzilla films followed. Gen Xers even got a version starring Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) in 1998. That one came with a Godzilla version of Green Day's "Brain Stew" and Puff Daddy's "Come With Me," a song that samples Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir" and features Zepp's Jimmy Page and Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine) on guitars. But I digress.

While I've never met a Godzilla film I didn't like, there's something magical about the 1954 original, which stars, among others, Haruo Nakajima, who portrayed the radioactive monster in all the Godzilla films through Godzilla vs. Gigan (1972).

On Sunday and Tuesday (August 3rd and 5th), you can see the 60th anniversary restored edition of original Japanese-made Godzilla at Film Streams.
